8) Lennon - A legend reborn (Original)

Première: lun. 11 février 1985
Dernière: Inconnu

Metteur en scène: Bob Eaton •  
Chorégraphe:  
Avec: Mark McGann (John Lennon), Jonathan Barlow, Ian Bums, Martyn Ellis, Mick O'Connor 

Commentaire: Bob Eaton’s biographical version of the Lennon story was first launched in Liverpool in 1981, soon after the murder of John Lennon in New York. The production eventually transferred to the Astoria Theatre in London where it had a successful run, with Mark McGann being nominated for an Olivier Award for his performance. The show was prevented from any further productions when the rights were revoked after Michael Jackson acquired the Beatles back catalogue. Following the death of Jackson, permission was given for a revival in Liverpool in 2010. During the run Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon visited London and went to see the show, and after the show met up with the cast and Julian Lennon.

Commentaire: Une production d'Andrew Lloyd Webber!!!
Although the work was felt to be a bit "preachy" and political, it was considered worthy, though not likely to be a popular draw.
The Hired Man was awarded the Ivor Novello Award for Best Musical, earned four Olivier Award nominations, and was voted Best Musical of the Year by the critics of Time Out, The Guardian, Punch & The Stage.  (plus)

Commentaire: An evening of song and dance featuring hot hits from the 1950s onwards - 67 different songs were listed in the programme, with a cast of 22 and an orchestra of 14 players - this was a concert rather than a musical.  (plus)

Joué durant  

Première preview: Inconnu
Première: mar. 18 janvier 1983
Dernière: Inconnu

Metteur en scène: Robert Walker •  
Chorégraphe: Lynne Hockney •  
Avec: Paul McGann (Danny), Steve McGann (Bo), Joe McGann (Joe), Griff Fender, Pikey Butler, Rita Ray, Duncan Kerr, Natalie Ogle, Nosmo King, Jimmy Compton, Mark McGann, Kenny Andrews 

Commentaire: With hardly any plot worry about, but excellent performances and the successful band known as “The Darts”, this was a great night’s entertainment for lovers of early rock’n’roll. The three brothers were played by three genuine brothers. The show underwent some re-writing and some minor re-casting for the transfer to the Astoria. Remarkably the cast was increased with yet another McGann brother - Mark McGann - and all four brothers were much praised for their acting and singing.  (plus)

Commentaire: Originally performed at the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, this began as a piece written for students at Mountview Theatre School. This production at the Astoria was an attempt at creating the American style “dinner theatre” - where stalls seats were removed and replaced with tables and chairs, and a meal was served prior to the start of the show.  (plus)
